A Review of the Twilight Soundtracks.
I'll proudly admit it, I have seen the latest and last installment of The Twilight Saga. I wouldn't call myself obsessed or even a fan (although I definitely used to be) of the films, but once I started them I thought I might as well finish them off. Breaking Dawn-2 definitely did not disappoint. I think they really made it keeping the fans in mind, but without making it overly corny or dramatic. If I were to describe the film in one word it would have to be, "pretty." The cinematography was well done and Robert Pattinson's hair was the perfect length, not too long nor too short. I mean let's be honest it's a film filled with pretty people acting in pretty scenery in pretty clothing. I'm not saying to put this movie on your Oscar radar, but it was definitely good enough that I saw it twice and enjoyed it both times. However, what really sticks out to me every time I watch a Twilight Saga movie isn't how Taylor Lautner's biceps have grown (or deflated in the case of this particular installment), but rather how amazing the soundtrack is. Team Edward, Team Jacob, or Twilight hater, whoever you are I think that we can all agree the movies incorporate a lot of great music. Anyone who saw the first movie can still probably remember the action packed baseball scene set to Muse's "Supermassive Black Hole." Everyone from The Killers to Cee Lo Green has shown up on a Twilight album. Some of my favorites from this current soundtrack include: Passion Pit's "Where I Come From," Christina Perri's "A Thousand Years, Pt. 2 (feat. Steve Kazee)," and finally Green Day's "The Forgotten" (check out the music video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Rs2m3lhg-k). If you're in the mood to both see what Kristen Stewart looks like with red contacts in and listen to some cool tunes while doing so, then this movie is definitely for you.
